Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


The Fraser Gallop cabernets I've tried to date have all been very good: classically profiled and well proportioned.  The "Parterre" seems to be the wine pitched at the middle of the range, the estate wine a rung lower and the "limited release" above.  The 2012 vintage in the Margaret River is yet another good vintage in this region.  In the glass, there are aromas of vanilla, clove and blackcurrant.  The palate has long length on the finish and its components are in harmony.  A short decant is suggested.  (Region: Margaret River, Western Australia, Rating: Very Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: 2019 to 2029, Tasted: July, 2017)
